Recently, Europe’s highest court have passed a court order that allows Employers to ban staff from wearing headscarves [Source]. Seriously?
but what’s wrong with headscarf, my lord? Religious concepts aside, what’s wrong with covering your head with a simple cloth? It would’ve been made sense if the court objected people who are under dressed or dresses exposing a lot in a professional environment.
I’m not muslim or supporting that women are supposed to wear headscarves. But I think deciding weather to wear or not to wear a headscarf is one’s personal choice. Court shouldn’t support what corporate says thoughtlessly.
I wouldn’t have bothered if the headscarves would’ve made any inconvenience in the environment. Like if they distracts the co-workers or call for some unwanted attention. But that’s entirely not the case here, headscarves actually discount all those unwanted trouble.
Dear Corporate/ Employers who think headscarves should be banned, what will happen if someone tells you that you will be fired if you wears underwear to work from tomorrow? Awkward isn’t it? Then why do you expect a women to stop wearing something which she has been wearing all her life?
I repeat again, I’m not suggesting women are supposed to wear headscarves, but I appeal that it’s their personal wish to wear it to or not, anywhere they want.
